Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.
You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together.
MAX & BLAZE
I write this in Memory of Max & Blaze, two of the best dogs I have come to know while at the Pet Project for Pets. Please do not get me wrong all the pets I have met are wonderful creatures and I am happy to meet and know them all. Occasionally, I get to know & spend time with some and they are special and will always be in my heart.
These two kids, Max and Blaze, will always be in my heart as they became a part of the Pet Project for Pets. They would come and visit almost every week on their way to the park. They would run through the Hidden Treasures thrift store and each grab toys out of the baskets. They would bring the toys back to the warehouse where they would each try and take the others toy. It was always fun to watch.
They loved treats, as most do, and they learned where all treats and dog food broken bags were kept, helping themselves while visiting. Max attended many of the Pet Project’s fundraising events.
We all continue to ask the question, why are their lives short, why must we lose them after 10 – 12, 13 14 … years and I do not know the answer but I can only say that I was happy to know Max & Blaze and although they are gone now, they will always be in my heart and in the heart of their Pet Parent, Herb who was a wonderful parent to them both.
